Yahoo! Sports seeks ‘passionate and even biased’ freelancers

Romenesko reader Jonathan Sanders forwards a Yahoo Sports job posting and writes: “Crazy that they don’t care if they’re getting ‘biased’ fans writing horse-crap … even crazier that they claim to then want ‘expert-level contributors’ but will only pay $1.10 per 1,000 page views, and only people who are willing to write prolifically, self-edit, build your own audience and generate all your own ideas need apply.”

Sanders adds: “As someone looking for legitimate work as a freelance journalist, I’m tired of having my education insulted with ‘offers’ like that.”
